Symbian is a mobile operating system and it is used for smartphones like all of Nokia’s smartphones, and many other manufacturers too such as Samsung, Sony Ericsson and LG. Symbian Foundation was founded in 1998 and became jointly owned by the main mobile phone manufacturers including Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola and others. In 2008 the Symbian Company was purchased entirely by Nokia and simultaneously turned into the Symbian Foundation, with the aim of becoming a free open source operating system by 2010. The first step of this process was to make Symbian free-of-charge, and it is now available free to any manufacturer who wants to use it in their products.
